I’ll cook at home thanks...

Went for lunch at my favourite Vietnamese on Cambie and prices were way up across the menu, I guess due to COVID 19. I won’t be rushing out to dine since apparently many restaurants are doing this due to limited seating.

I can understand the restaurants needing to increase the prices to try to reflect the new reality. However, I don't at all feel the need to be an obliging consumer on those terms to support this. Over the past 10 weeks my wife and I have greatly expanded our repertoire at meal-time, learning new dishes, and making it a shared activity. Our outings have been long bike rides around the city, and other outdoor events with the dog. Way less $$ spent than before this way. Until this new normal for us wears thin, I can't say we are missing eating out at all.

I already WAS too expensive.
The only thing I can't make at home is dosa s but that's pretty much just a pancake.

Nothing new here

I’ve been living this way for ages. I live on a very small budget now that I’m disabled, so I can’t afford expensive entertainment and restaurants anyway, but I much prefer a simple life regardless. I get that restaurants feel the need to make up for the financial hit they’re taking, but I also think they’re signing their own death warrant by raising their prices so high that their customers stay away. People like me who only ate out once in a while will be doing so even less now.

Through higher taxes and higher prices on food, clothing etc., us public will eventually be paying for COVID- like the headline said, its inevitable.
